What a wonderful find! The rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped with kettle, tea, coffee, biscuits, fruit and lovely fresh flowers. TV and sufficient plug points... More

We stayed here for two nights whilst on a golfing holiday. The rooms are very clean, modern and well equipped. The breakfast is all freshly cooked and a good choice. Evening meal is excellent. For £30 for two people, a two course meal with a very good menu choice and a bottle of house wine what more could you ask... More
